The University of North Texas Music Library is pleased to announce and host “Press Start”: A Video Game Music Symposium to be held Saturday, March 26, 2022 held by the University of North Texas College of Music in Denton, Texas. This symposium will be held in-person and registration will be required to attend. For those who cannot attend in-person, the event will be streamed live. We are excited to welcome Akash Thakkar as our keynote speaker.

Our panel topics will include academic and industry support for video game music, diversity and inclusion in the industry, and breaking into the video game music industry.

  • Program of events coming soon!
  • Registration is now closed.

The University of North Texas is located in Denton approximately twenty-five miles north of DFW International Airport. Learn more about our College of Music and the Music Library. For attendees, we recommend purchasing a Day-use Permit for $5.00. To do this, create a guest account with UNT Transportation Services. Day-use permits allow visitors to park in an Eagle lot. For attendees with a Day-Use Permit, Eagle Lot 27 is closest to the Music Building.

While the UNT campus is reopening fully in the fall, we realize there is still a great deal of uncertainty regarding travel and the day-to-day operations of universities. We have every hope that an in-person conference will proceed as planned but are prepared to move the conference fully online. Such a decision will be made and announced with as much notice as possible.

We look forward to hosting this event and meeting attendees. Please direct questions to this inquiry form.
